It's been awhile since I shared a DIY project, so I thought that I would start new year off a new hat! I've been collecting both hat patterns and scrap fabric, and came across this hem from a skirt that had just enough to make this cycling cap from Dude Craft. This is a really easy FREE pattern.
Cute, eh? And it's lined too!
So go get you some scrap fabric (old pants and shirts, sport coats, curtains, etc. Thrift shops are great places to find fabric for cheap!). You'll also need 3/4" twill tape (long enough to go around your head + and inch or two to be on the safe side), about 3" of 1/2" elastic and either a thin plastic binder or a yogurt (or similar) container for the brim. This makes a great weekend project for those weekends that you aren't out there riding. ;)
